    Fascinating. I did not realise that the name "B&H" had a religious connotation.

    Jews have always made good merchants.
    As an example of that, they just mailed me a thick fat holiday season catalog to tempt me again.

    Did they send a bagel with the catalog?

    Its quite an incredible store..i deliberately went to visit the store when i had a few hours in NYC after a meeting..too bad the sales tax was high and it was prob not worth to buy anything because of that. I really like the fact that they allow you to try equipment with absolutely no obligations or pressure at all..

    I hated going there. Too crowded. I usually just mail order.

    The catalog looked pretty beat up. Maybe the postman ate the bagel......
